Trump, Cohen discuss paying off playmate in secret tape and it's no big deal


Pretty salacious stuff. 
But, in the end these tapes, which Trump wanted released, will not ham President Trump one bit.  It's sizzle but with no streak because no laws were broken. 
Fox News reports a recording of President Donald Trump and his longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, discussing a possible payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal was provided to CNN Tuesday by Cohen's attorney and longtime Clinton confidant Lanny Davis.

Fox News and other outlets confirmed the existence of the tape on Friday. A source has told Fox that no payment was ever made to McDougal.

On the recording, which was made prior to the 2016 presidential election, Cohen tells Trump: "I need to open up a company for the transfer of all of that info regarding our friend David" and adds that he has consulted Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg "about how to set the whole thing up."
